Ratings and Reviews
Couldn’t have worked better.
This is a genuine review and I am writing it on the day I have returned from an arctic cruise.
This app worked perfectly! It gave me an alert informing me that there was a good chance of seeing the northern lights during the next hour. Due to this I went up in the deck of our ship and I was literally the first person there to witness the aurora appear. I got some wonderful pictures and it was a once in a lifetime experience that I am sure I would have missed if it wasn’t for this app.
I can’t rate it highly enough. It works perfectly and is free, so don’t waste your money on the other apps. Well done to the creators and a massive thank you.
Developer Response ,
It's great to hear that the app helped you to experience this. Thank you for your support :)
Really good 😀
This app is really accurate therefore when we had a good chance of seeing them we did.I believe that this tops the other aurora apps if you are wanting to see the northern lights this is an amazing app. To add to this it shows the cloud personage and tags where the best locations are. To conclude this app has been accurate , amazing , and great to me therefore I really recommend it to anyone who is looking for the aurora!
Alerts are brilliant
I installed this app during a recent trip to northern Norway to keep an eye on what the aurora was doing. And finally, on our last night there, it helped us spot the northern lights when we might otherwise have missed it. Furthermore, the app is very informative and taught me a lot about how these things are forecast.
